hi ...

so ..

when did we start adding features that have no chance in hell of actually 
working accurately?

i love how my battery had 0:00 time just a second ago, even though it's fully 
charged, and now it has 0:18 left. these are bullshit numbers, not only 
because apparently the hardware drivers don't actually work but because even 
when they do it varies according to workload that can and does shift wildly 
from minute to minute on most machines. yes, i'm looking at you flash enabled 

and here we are accommodating the display of such misleading information by 
adding more paths to our code and more widgets in our options dialogs.

can someone provide a justification, other than idiot pacification, for
